In honour of the approaching Year of the Dragon, Lego is expanding its themed brick collection and unveiling three new festive sets that we just cannot wait to get our hands on! For children and those who are young at heart like we are, this makes for the perfect activity to pore over after a hearty Chinese New Year dinner.

First is the Auspicious Dragon set, an intricate model comprising more than 1,100 pieces for you to put together. Once built, you’ll end up with a multi-coloured, fearsome dragon, complete with printed eyes and detailed scales, a lucky jewel clutched in its claw, and a nameplate adorned with Chinese characters. Sitting on a rock in the sea, the flaming creature’s tilted head and tail make for an extra dramatic scene.

Suitable for children, the Creator 3-in-1 Red Dragon is a smaller buildable toy that can be assembled in three different ways to create either a red dragon, a phoenix, or a fish—all auspicious symbols in Chinese culture and folklore. With this flexible set, the possibilities are endless as the bricks also allow for free reign to create your own animals. More on the kid-friendly side of Lego, it makes for a great holiday gift.

Last but certainly not least, the elaborate Family Reunion Celebration set is a lovely addition to Lego’s Asia collection anytime of the year. Featuring 1,800-plus pieces, the setting recalls a Chinese restaurant and is split into detailed areas located throughout the building, including a kitchen, a dining room with a dim sum and noodle feast, a rooftop, a bathroom, a flower market, and more! Chinese New Year references are scattered all over, such as a tangerine tree, red lanterns, red packets, and fireworks. It also comes with a host of different Lego characters to set the scene.

If you simply cannot get enough of Lego, you’ll be happy to hear that Lego will also celebrate the Lunar New Year at AIA Carnival. Over the festive long weekend, themed Lego products will be available at the Lego Happy Energy Hub at the AIA Carnival. Depending on your spend at the pop-up store, you could redeem a Lego lantern, mini-dragon, or even an exclusive set of the Hong Kong Observation Wheel and Lego store! Mascots dressed in festive garb will animate the space from 10 till 12 February.
